Quote of the Day: Abysmal Failure Accomplished!

"... in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, there were only a few hundred Islamist fighters in the Hindu Kush mountains. Fast forward through 16 years of the war on terror costing some $4,000bn and leaving 1.3 million dead, according to Physicians for Social Responsibility, and the number of terrorists is currently about 100,000. Even on its own terms, the war on terror has been an abysmal failure."--"World War 3 is Coming..." The Independent
The article paints a bleak portrait of a world filled with sectarian violence (I'm counting nationalistic aggression among that), and quotes Steve Bannon's prediction (or promise) of the US going to war in the South China Sea within 10 years.
